A memorable and wet Silverstone Grand Prix brought to us a wonderful performance by Romanian Laurentiu Albu, who started from the pit-lane and, mixing raw speed and an impressive consistency, went on to lap the whole field to score his first ever win.

The Belami Racing manager-driver took maximum advantage from Mark Wicks's absence and collected the full prize for his efforts, clinching 10 points and moving within striking distance to the Cornish driver - only three points separate the top two contenders now. Behind the race winner, Nordsjoen driver William Ponissi came back to points and scored his second podium of the season, edging now in a solitary third in the Drivers' Championship, a result few would have expected at the start of the season.

In a race marred by absences and misfortunes, an highlight is Martijn Vosselman, who fell only one lap short of the 90% race distance required to be classified, and therefore had to miss on 6 points that would have helped his team massively in the fight for the Constructors' crown. The last two racers to take part were Luke McKee, who completed his first Grand Prix without major trouble, and Jeroen Jansen, who was in course for a solid podium finish but was disqualified due to technical irregularities on his car.
